Do Something

 "Do Something" (1929) is a song written by Sam H. Stept and Bud Green for the Paramount Pictures film Nothing But The Truth (1929), in which the song was performed by Helen Kane. Unfortunately, the scene of Kane singing this song seems to be missing from the only existing print of the movie. Kane also had a hit recording of the song for Victor Records, which she recorded in 1929. The sheet music, bearing Kane's photo, and phonograph record both state that the song is featured in the 1929 film Nothing But The Truth.






"Do Something" (Betty Boop's Version)

Lyrics:

Bbqwikia

There's the moon 

Way up high

Here are you 

And here am I

Oh, do do 

Do something

Boop-Oop-a-Doop!

It's been told

And explained 

That nothing tried

Is nothing gained

Oh...do

Oh c'mon honey 

Do something

Boop-Oop-a-Doop!

At the time and the place

Place and the time 

I know

I gotta bench and a park

And a park and a bench 

And all

Boop-Oop-a-Doop!

Sit down

Seems so dumb

Hurry dear

I'm getting numb

I'll do

You do

Poop-a-Doop-a-Doop-a-Doo-Poop-Oop-a-Doo!

Betty Boop - "Do Something" (1932)

Betty Boop performs "Do Something" in the 1932 cartoon Boop-Oop-a-Doop, voiced by Margie Hines. Other sources indicate Little Ann Little, but the performer is most likely Hines, who provided the vocals for Betty in a majority of Betty Boop cartoons from 1931 to 1932.
